Your niece has good taste the Vasse Felix would be amazing I bet...Posted elsewhere but let’s do it aagain - ANZAC Day such an important day in our calendar and thanks to our HEROES from generations gone by we are lucky enough celebrate this day in any fashion we choose.
I chose to surround myself with imm family members and a flock of Champs botts:

Then after the game we lost by 4pts - we were robbed by the way - (can someone pls call Steve Hocking and tell him Tippy does have a neck and shoulders) - I told niece #15 to go down to cellar and grab any 2 botts red that take her fancy and we will head to local pizza/pasta establishment:

So give me your thoughts - one of these wines slaughtered the other - pls tell me which one?
And just to add a bit of spice to AFF - penegal has offered to donate a bottle of Grange to the first person who can identify the person wearing the GRUMPY T-shirt in the background!

Under the weather cove, maybe you need to take some vitamins or wasn’t it much chop..... can you handle a Cullen DM by yourself?Tried the Xanadu 2016 Jimmy Watson winner and it was pretty good. I struggled to drink the whole bottle
Those prices you are quoting look great, another reason to push South America further up my bucket list.The climb in vineyard altitude in the Andes continues. Where will it end?
This one from 2625m was a cracker. On the wine list at Fernando’s excellent restaurant in Tilcara, it was described as 60:40 Syrah:Malbec. But the label suggests Malbec predominates. And the ABV went AWOL...
An eye-watering 1000 pesos on the list. (The general price point on the quite extensive list is 500-600 pesos). But a far less eye-watering $32 when converted . Again, Fernando brought out a decanter. Exceptional stuff!
Heading back there again tomorow night and Fernando has lined up something special that is not on his winelist and is from an even higher vineyard. Can’t wait!
